“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Supreme Court slaps labor unions in the face...heh

It's awful that unions get to take money away from employees, including non-union members, in closed-shop situations, whenever they want to increase dues or take special assessments for political donations to democrats. Finally some workers were fed up and sued the unions for the right to opt out of what amounts to coercive political speech. The case finally made it to the Supreme Court.

The Court ruled today 7-2 that labor unions must give advanced notice if they want to assess non-members for political donations so they could opt out of they wished. This decision rightly chips away at the thuggery with which labor union bosses intimidate non-union workers.

p.s. is Ruth Bader Ginsberg still alive? Somebody should prop her up with a stick or something.
